Body scanners introduced at Heathrow and Manchester

HEATHROW and Manchester airports have both introduced body scanners and whilst the national press and TV has attempted to generate outrage for the most part passengers have quickly adapted.  Rather like ‘patting down’, travellers seem to accept that there is a need for increased/improved security.  Under new rules introduced by the government any refusal to be body scanned will result in passengers not being allowed to travel.  The image generated by the body scanner cannot be stored or captured nor can security officers viewing the images recognise people.  Contrary to reports, the equipment does not allow security staff to see passengers naked? www.heathrowairport.com www.manchesterairport.co.uk
